Fishing Gear plus Bait and Tackle
Our Wellington Dive Shop is located next to the only all-weather boat launching ramp on the west coast. We have a good selection of fishing tackle and accessories from Hot Shotz, Wasabi, Black Magic, Gamakatsu and other great brands. There is a great selection of well priced Southern Bait, lures, spinners and sinkers for every job. Also great buying are our Rod and Reel combos from Jarvis Walker and Rovex.
We also support spearfishing which is becoming popular as the dive industry grows. Starting from wetsuits, fins, spearguns, everything you need to get into the sport or replace that old gear. There are also some great packages too.
Kayaks and Assessories
Kayaking is a great way to explore the many waterways and oceans surrounding New Zealand. Kayak “fishing” has become a very popular way to reach those difficult to access fishing spots. You can even Scuba dive from a Kayak. We have an in-store range of kayaks and others quickly available. These include a wide selection of sit-in and sit-on single, double, triple and specialized fishing kayaks. We also have Kayaking life vests, paddles and kayaking accessories.
